Okat is the solo project of award-winning Arizona musician Tyler Griffin. Drawing inspiration from minimalism, ambient, and drone, Okat focuses on dynamic melodies juxtaposed against drowning, tonal climaxes, breaking through genre labels to build music that is equally warm and yet somehow chilling.

Up to date [ Okat ] has released two titles [ Driftwoods ] that came out August 2011 and the most recent [ Sable ] which came out June [ 2012 ]. Both releases are exceptionally well done based on the quoted tags. Although Driftwoods is more of a mini EP type, 3 tracks with a total duration of 09minutes but you still might want to give both a thorough listen starting with the latest one [ Sable ]. TOTALLY WORTHY.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
